if it only happens while in 4WD mode, then you should get your transfer case looked at.

Keep in mind that on ford the front drive shaft front diff and front axles do not turn when in 2 wheel drive it is completely disconnect from wheels

ok so problem could be in any one of those components. See if you can rent one of those "chassis ear" gizmos.

Have you ever heard of a inner cv joint causing a clunking noise only when slowing down


 Driveshaft u joints.

Drive shaft has cv joints no u joints i was thinking that but i dont feel it right under my seat where the drive shaft is i had someone say the can feel in on the passenger side have you ever heard of an inner cv joint on the front axle clunking only when letting off the gas

You said 4 wd. What about the u joints on the rear driveshaft?

Checked the u joints on rear drive shaft feel tight has a shop check them and they said it they look good also but only doing it in 4wd
